The OU department of Esports & Co-Curricular Innovation has been in development since 2016 and launched in Fall 2020. It is the development center for the largest gaming community at OU, academic curriculum development, research initiatives, and everything needed within esports for a path to industry approach.
As part of our media outlet we also have a heavy emphasis on live production broadcasts. This can be for anything from community engagement, podcasts, presentations, official gameplay, camps, and influencers. The goal since the beginning is to be equally competitive in media as we are in intercollegiate esports.
